If the act of suicide is beyond the control of the one who commits it; if, the brain chemistry and the level of general befuddlement (from whateve cause) is something the person in question simply had not the means to prevail against, how much benefit is there in making this clear to the public at large?
I will leave questions for you to either ponder alone or below, or in the hallowed halls of Facebook, because I am not committed to an answer. I have no answer, but I have that most blessed of growth-promoting problems: doubt; indecision.
I understand wanting to remove a stigma from fallen folks like, say, Robin Williams and from loved ones who have taken their own lives. Still, is it better to downplay the helplessness and to place even a possibly incorrect level responsibility on the fallen person? -- maybe leave just a sprinkle of the blame that suicide once carried?
Does the "raising of awareness" at any point become an inducement or even an excuse for self-destruction? If a suffering soul hears someone say that those who slid knife across wrist did so because they could not control their actions, might that same suffering soul falsely identify him or herself at "that point" and -- just perhaps -- more easily succumb to the temptation to end everything?
Your thoughts on this particular question would be very welcome. As I said, I have not full conclusion in mind...
